Offensive Tackle - Anthony Costanzo, Boston College
Private Workout: No
Private Visit to Team Facility: No
Attended Proday: No
Other: Senior Bowl Interview
4 year durable starter at LT, he is more of a right tackle prospect, with a physical, mauling mindset, and locks on to defenders and wears them down. Not a dominating straight ahead run blocker, and will get pushed around at the point of attack, but does an above average job of moving with even the top quality DEs, though speedy rushers like Robert Quinn gave him trouble. Not a first day starter at LT, but can start at RT, and eventually shift over when he gets the NFL speed under his belt.
Where He Goes in the Draft:
What is Denver's Interest In Him?
Consider Costanzo another double trade down guy, though not nearly as valuable as Solder. Unlike Solder, however, Denver can actually feign interest in a RT prospect, and possibly encourage a minor one or two spot jump from a team that misses out on Tyron Smith and Solder. One interview at the Senior Bowl was enough to set Costanzo firmly on the board.

[Note: All players in the table are ranked by overall grade within their round grouping, however, the round groupings are based on where this player will likely be drafted based on where teams are currently selecting in the draft. Therefore a player is ranked within a group by his level of ability, but players in nearby groupings may have higher or lower actual grades, despite being in a different group.
